LRD1304 Comfort of a Friend Woman Shawl

Is this an extra-ordinarily practical shawl, or a criss-crossed vest? Both, perhaps. My great-grandma knit a doll-sized version of this shawl for my mom’s wartime doll. It inspired this woman’s garment: it is a shawl made of garter stitch with cupped shoulders—it clings to your curves. It is a vest with semi-hidden buttons and a shawl profile. Above all, it keeps your shoulders warm and won’t blow about with every whim. It sticks with you in all kinds of weather — kind of like a good friend.
